This gathering is for all persons who are interested in growing our witness to Christ into the Hispanic community within our synod. Whether you are a pastor, a deacon, or a layperson, we invite you to come and share in this event. It will be held at All Saints Lutheran Church/ Iglesia de Santa Maria, 2961 Chapel Valley Rd., Fitchburg, WI 53711 from 10AM – 3PM. Lunch will be provided.
At this time, there are three (3) congregations which reach Hispanic people: one housed at St. Paul Lutheran Church – Beloit, one housed at All Saints – Fitchburg and one housed at Immanual Evangelical Lutheran Church – Watertown. We are aware of the growing population of people who have a Latin heritage on the territory of this synod. Being led by Christ’s admonition to go into all the world, we seek to be siblings in Christ to this population but recognize that we need to be intentional with an outreach that recognizes the gifts that each culture brings into the church.
Hispanic Ministry in the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin is committed to welcome and promote the cultural identity of the diverse faces of our local church, and to build a deeply Lutheran and multicultural identity. To accomplish this in a constructive way requires us to build an intentional strategy for this outreach. Come join us in building this ministry together.
